Lloyd H. Elliott has been chosen 
president and chief executive officer 
of the National Geographic Society 
Education Foundation. He will assume 
this post upon his retirement from 

The $20 million foundation, 
established as part of the 100th 
anniversary observance of the society, 
demonstrates "a renewed and expanded 
commitment to geography education," 
said National Geographic President 
Gilbert M. Grosvenor. 

The foundation will raise funds 
and provide grants to support national 
and local programs in geography edu- 
cation. In addition, a challenge fund 
of $20 million has been established to 
match outside contributions. Eventually 
the society hopes to raise $100 million. 
Grosvenor will chair the foundation’s 

In accepting his new position, 
Elliott pointed out that the foundation 
will serve several needs. "It will 
focus public attention on the critical 
lack of geographic literacy in this 
country, bring together the resources 
needed to remedy the situation, and 
target those funds where they can 
make a real difference -- in the hands 
of classroom teachers and students," 
he said. 

Grosvenor expressed his deep 
concern at America’s lack of knowl- 
edge of geography, and noted that, 
"without geographically and technol- 
ogically literate citizens, America 
cannot compete in world markets or 
take the lead in meeting international, 
political, economic, environmental, 
social, and military challenges." 


On Janua^ 20, Lloyd H. Elliott was 
one of 16 individuals honored as 
Washingtonians of the Year by The

one of its greatest assets." The qual- 
ity of the University’s three libraries, 
the growth of the endowment and the 
increasing distinction of the faculty 
are highlighted among the president’s 
achievements during his 23-year 

The Washingtonian of the Year 
awards were established in 1971 to

As a general policy, the University will 
remain open despite local weather or 
travel conditions and other emergency 
situations. At all times, certain ser- 
vices must be maintained and "designa- 
ted" employees must remain at, or re- 
port to, work. 

V^en conditions require, the Uni- 
versity may cancel classes and invoke a 
liberal leave policy, which would apply 
to regular full-time and part-time 
employees other than "designated" em- 
ployees. This liberal leave policy 
permits regular full-time and part-time 
employees to use accrued annual leave 
without permission of their supervisors 
if they are unable to report to work or 
to remain at work. Temporary employ- 
ees do not accrue annual leave. Em- 
ployees who have no accrued annual 
leave would be granted leave of ab- 
sence without pay. The cancellation 
of classes does not mean that the Uni- 
versity has invoked a liberal leave 

Individual employees should check 
with their supervisors tor requirements 
within their units. When there is a 
need to do so, the University will give 
class cancellations and liberal leave 
policy information to local radio and 
television stations.

SPECIAL CONVOCATION — Lord Briggs of Lewes at the podium 



At a special convocation in the 
Marvin Theatre, Friday, January 29, 
Lord Asa Briggs of Lewes received the 
honorary degree of Doctor of Humane 
Letters and delivered an address titled 
"Victorian Inventions: The Imaginative 
Response to New Technology." In con- 
ferring the degree. President Lloyd H. 
Elliott said that Lord Briggs "merits 
the title, in our time, of Most Eminent 

In a wide-ranging discussion. Lord 
Briggs gave abundant examples of re- 
sponses to 19th century inventions by 
such poets and novelists as Charlotte 
Bronte, Rudyard Kipling, and Charles 
Dickens, as well as the reactions of 
scientific writers and cartoonists. A- 
mong the inventions of the Victorian 
era, the steam engine, the automobile, 
electricity, the telegraph or "wireless," 
and the telephone received particular 

attention. Electricity was seen as a 
new source of light and power. The 
Times of London called the laying of 
the first transatlantic cable "a vast en- 
largement . . . given to the sphere of 
human activity." The telegraph, Dickens 
said, had outdone "even delicate Ariel 
who could ‘put a girdle round the 
earth in 40 minutes.’" 

"We can trace back," Lord Briggs 
observed, "continuing patterns of re- 
sponse to the different novelties in 
the sequence that we now call a con- 
tinuing ‘communications revolution.’" 

He commented that the value of liter- 
ature in studying the Victorian re- 
sponse to technology is that it gives 
evidence of what seemed to matter at 
the time. "I leave it to you," he told 
his listeners, "to compare our own tech- 
nologies and our responses to them to 
those of the Victorians." 


Jarol B. Manheim, an authority on pol- 
itical marketing and public relations, 
has been appointed director of the 
Political Communications Program at 
GW, effective Spring Semester 1988. 

He is the first full-time director of the 
five-year-old program. 

Manheim has written extensively 
on manipulative political communica- 
tion. His works have been published in 
leading journals of political science and 
communications such as American Poli- 
tical Science Review and Journalism 
Quarterly., He is the author of several 
books, including Empirical Political 
Analysis: Research Methods in Politi- 
cal Science (2nd ed., Longman, 1986) 
and The Politics Within: A Primer in 
Political Attitudes and Behavior (2nd 
ed., Longman, 1982). 

Manheim comes to GW from 
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State 
Umversity where he served for 13 
years as an assistant professor and la- 
ter as associate professor of political 
science. Prior to that, he served on the 
faculty of the City University of New 
York. He earned a B.A. from Rice 
University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in 
political science from Northwestern.

The George Washington University 
Hospital Women’s Board celebrated it’s 
90th birthday on February 3 at an in- 
formal midday ceremony in the Univer- 
sity Hospital. Acting Vice President 
for Medical Affairs L. Thompson Bowles 
and Medical Director of the University 
Hospital William F. Minogue were pres- 
ent to extend their congratulations 
and appreciation to board members. 

Founded in 1898, the board has 
been a major support group for the 
hospital over the years. More than 
$165,000 was donated to the Medical 
Center by the board in 1987. The 
funds were used to purchase an Argus 
Laser; support a part-time coordinator 
for a pilot program in the oncology 
unit; and to provide equipment for 
Ross Hall and additional equipment for 
the Himmelfarb Library’s microcomputer 

The new position of executive 
coordinator for volunteer services in 
the University Hospital is being par- 
tially funded by the board as its latest 
contribution. The position is held by 
Mary McIntosh, who was formerly asso- 
ciated with GW Hospital Administration.

An honorary Doctor of Laws degree 
was conferred on President Lloyd H. 
Elliott by the American University at 
its 86th commencement ceremonies 
Sunday, January 31, in Constitution 
Hall. American University President 
Richard Berendzen awarded the degree. 

Elliott delivered the commence- 
ment address, "Educating Americans: A 
Personal Responsibility." He expressed 
grave concern that "we are facing a 
crisis in the primary and secondary 
education of our children." Elliott ob- 
served that "we have somehow gone 
from a nation of ambitious, undauntable 
parents and children ... to a nation 
with sagging test scores and a group 
mentality that often translates ‘work’ 
as ‘too much trouble.’" He called 
attention to the current status of the 
school teacher as often "underappre- 
ciated and overlooked." 

There are, however, "promising 
signs" of a reawakening Elliott said, 
noting that "good minds are at work" 
on the problems. He cited reports from 
the National Endowment for the Hu- 
manities and the Department of Educa- 
tion recommending changes in second- 
ary school curricula, and pointed out 
the recent establishment of the Nation- 
al Geographic Society Education Found- 

"Perhaps too many parents have 
opted out or taking leading roles in 
their children’s education," he com- 
mented, adding that something vital is 
lost when the responsibility for school- 
ing is separated from direct parental or 
family support. He emphasized the need 
for reallocation of time, "time that 
undoubtedly needs to be spent with our 
children." Referring to John Curran, 
who defined the price of liberty as 
"eternal vigilance," Elliott concluded, 

"It may well be that the price of an 
educated society also is eternal vigil- 
ance. If so, it will be well worth the

WINTER CONVOCATION - President Lloyd H. Elliott, left, congratulates 
Honorary Trustee John Bonner Duncan after conferring on him the degree 
of Doctor of Public Service. 


President Lloyd H. Elliott, delivering 
the address at the Winter Convocation, 
admitted to "a lifelong love affair with 
schools, colleges and universities" and 
went on to examine the place of the 
university in society and to speak of 
his hopes for George Washington. 

Elliott said he had consciously 
avoided calling George Washington "my 
university" but that he would, for a 
few minutes, give a "realistic blueprint" 
of what he wants "my university" to 

First offering a "broad definition" 
of a university, Elliott said it "is a 
place where students may come togeth- 
er to pursue learning; where teachers 
may teach; where scholars may pursue 
scholarship . . . where men and women 
may study, search, and one hopes, may 
discover ways to make a better life for 
all humankind." He said that as he 
scans society’s horizons, he sees the 
university as "the one institution of all 
institutions that holds the greatest 
promise for the advancement of civili- 

The president then gave two prin- 
ciples as guides for George Washington 
- first, that it be a haven for what is 
called in academe "the pursuit of 
truth," independent, nonsectarian, and 
nonpartisan; second, that it be a place 
of academic freedom, of free inquiry. 
"The spirit of truth and the spirit of 
freedom are the pillars of my univer- 
sity. . . . Students given the freedom to 
explore, to dissect, to scrutinize . . to 
seek truth wherever that quest leads 
them . . . these students develop the 
habit of an inquiring mind that will 
serve them well for a lifetime. . . they 
will form the background of our demo- 
cratic society and provide intellectual 
nourishment to civilization." 

Elliott expressed confidence in the 
future of the University if it follows 
the ideals of truth and freedom. "It will 
reach greatness and it will stand and 
serve throughout the ages," he said, 
concluding, "Your university is the 

George Washington University, and it is 
mine. I thank you for this time to- 
gether and I give thanks for the treas- 
ure that we share." 

President Elliott received a stand- 
ing ovation when he was introduced to 
speak by Board of Trustees Chairman 
Everett H. Bellows who called him a 
"successful leader during 23 years filled 
with accomplishment." 


In conferring the honorary degree 
of Doctor of Public Service on John 
Bonner Duncan, President Elliott said, 
in part, "We celebrate your role in 
building bridges between university and 
community. ... Today’s students are the 
beneficiaries of your farsighted work 
with their predecessors and your legacy 
of concern for the quality of student 
life at the University." 

Mrs. Elliott was presented a bouquet 
of red roses on behalf of the Univer- 
sity community by Professor John 
Ziolkowski, chairman of the faculty 
marshals for the day, following brief 
remarks of appreciation by University 
Marshal Robert G. Jones. She received 
warm applause.

M.K. WU, Department of Physics, University of Alabama, right, talked with Thomas 
D. Gillespie, senior policy analyst. Office of Science and Tedinology, Executive 
Office of the President, following Wu’s February 19 presentation. 


"90-K Superconductivity - After One 
Year" was the topic addressed by M. 

K. Wu of the Department of Physics, 
College of Science, the University of 
Alabama, at a February 19 seminar 
OTonsored by the SEAS Institute for 
Technology and Strategic Research. 

Wu reviewed activities in high 
temperature superconductivity during 
the past 12 months, and discussed the 
discovery of the first 90-K supercon- 
ductor, the major results of supercon- 
ductivity research, advancements in 
processing techniques and the search 
for new materials. 

In informal conversation following 
his scientific presentation, Wu mention- 
ed some of the practical applications 
the current research in superconductiv- 
ity and superconductive materials may 

There is now a device called a 

"SQUID," a superconductivity quantum 
interference device, which in everyday 
life is useful for the detection of 

Applied to transportation, super- 
conductivity can make possible a mag- 
netic levitation train, or floating train, 
which moves above the ground. A 
model train has been constructed in 
Japan, but Wu said it would be "maybe 
20 years" before such a train would be 
in general use. 

In hospitals, medical imaging 
devices would benefit from the super- 
conducting effect. Superconductivity is 
now being used in CAT scans. 

In the future, there may be small- 
er computers using superconducting de- 
vices. The problem of overheating will 
be less or non-existent. With smaller 
switching devices, these computers will 
function much more rapidly, Wu said.

The George Washington University 
is an equal opportunity /affirmative 
action employer. 



The University’s School of International 
Affairs has formed an affiliation with 
the Humanities and International Stud- 
ies Program at Central High School in 
Prince George’s County. 

In a joint announcement February 
25, Prince George’s County Board of 
Education Chairman Barbara F. Martin 
and President Lloyd H. Elliott described 
the affiliation as a potential national 
model for using the combined resources 
of a public school system and a univer- 

Martin said, "The partnership will 
offer students one of the area’s — if 
not the nation’s - most unique and ac- 
ademically challenging programs in pre- 
paration for university studies in the 
humanities and international affairs . . 

. . The potential of this affiliation is 
endless.^' She noted the affiliation 
will benefit, by extension, students at 
Andrew Jackson Middle School in Suit- 

Speaking directly to the students, 
Elliott emphasized that education is a 
continuous process. He complimented 
the richness of the program’s current 
curriculum and observed that "the 
opportunity for teachers and professors 
to get much closer together in order to 
benefit . . . students is the real 
dividend which I see coming out of this 
kind of collaboration." 

SLA Dean Maurice A. East pointed 
out that the partnership is "one of the 
nation’s very first university-school 
collaborative arrangements focusing on 
international studies." 

The affiliation will enable the 
magnet program to offer newly designed 
courses and college level seminars in 
international studies, exploration of 
global political and economic issues, 
discussion of world social and geo- 
graphic concerns, and foreign cultures 
and languages. 

GW professors and high school 
faculty members will share the plan- 
ning and teaching of selected courses 
ana seminars. Some special classes and 
seminars will be held on the George 
Washington campus. 

The Humanities and International 
Studies Program at Central High School 
is one of 11 magnet programs offered 
in 39 public schools m Prince George’s 
County. Based on a traditional liberal 
arts model, students receive intensive 
instruction in literature, history, art. 

music, geography, and foreign lan- 
guages. Students successfuuy complet- 
ing the program are said to be well 
prepared to pursue any field of college 

One of the components in the pro- 
gram gives teachers in four different 
disciplines - art, music, literature, and 
history - the opportunity to coordinate 
their instruction so that students can 
complete an interdisciplinary research 
paper each year. There are also inter- 
disciplinary essay examinations four 
times yearly. 

The program is designed to enable 
students to graduate with demonstrated 
mastery of the academic competencies 
identified by the College Board, in- 
cluding speaking, writing, reading, 
mathematics and reasoning. Instituted 
at Central High School in September 
1987, the humanities and international 
studies curriculum now enrolls approxi- 
mately 250 students. 


A retrospective exhibition of works by 
Michael Green (1944-1987X including 
31 paintings and works on paper, will 
be on view in the Dimock Gallery from 
March 17 through March 30. 

The works have been chosen as 
representative of the artist’s style and 
breadth of achievement. Green’s color 
sensibility and rhythmic expressionism 
have been compared to that of Matisse 
and Soutine. His figures, landscape 
compositions and interiors recall quiet 
moments and travels abroad. 

Green was a colorist painter and, 
administrator of the Phillips Collect- 
tion. He joined the Phillips in 1977 as 
a museum assistant, progressing to 
assistant for administration after one 
year. He was named administrator in 
1982. Green died February 5, 1987, 
after a short illness. 

Born in Brunswick, Georgia, in 
1944, Green spent his childhood in 
suburban New York. He received his 
B.F.A. degree from Kent State Univer- 
sity (1967) and an M.F.A. from The 
George Washington University (1976).

areas of the Self-Study, done in pre- 
paration for the review: academic 
computing, general education, policy 
studies, and research. It also review- 
ed other selected areas, such as off- 
campus programs, student concerns, and 
the financial relationship of the Medi- 
cal School to the total operation of the 

With regard to academic comput- 
ing, the report registers approval of 
the establishment of the Computer Ad- 
visory Council and of the "sound infra- 
structure investment "represented by 
the Information Systems Network (ISN) 
as well as of the creation of the Com- 
puter Information and Resource Center 
(CIRC/US). The report also identifies 
certain concerns and suggests consider- 
ation of strategic plaiming, to include 
metropolitan area networking, more in- 
tegrated information systems and great- 
er recognition of the library as an 
integral component of the campus in- 
formation network. 

The general education section of 
the Self-Study is called "thoughtful and 
thorough." The report observes there 
is a need for a common identity among 
students, "who now identify with their 
school but not generally with the Uni- 
versity." There are recommendations 
on sharing common general education 
requirements across disciplines, capi- 
tahzing on the University’s location, 
and integrating Student Affairs support 
to complement efforts in non-curncular 
student life. The report also cites as 

areas requiring attention academic ad- 
visement, the development of a positive 
and supportive environment for all 
students and the expansion of lines of 
communication between administration 
and students. 

The report states that "the Univer- 
sity should move toward the establish- 
ment of a Public Policy Center." It 
notes that George Washington has the 
advantages of location that "could 
make this premier enterprise." The 
report also suggests that a viable 
centralized unit be established with 
priority given to effective leadership, 
funding, and the recruitment of strong, 
research-oriented personnel. 

In the area of research, the report 
recognizes the quality work being con- 
ducted at GW and points out the need 
to establish priorities. "In order suc- 
cessfully to implement research goals," 
it states, "a limited number of areas 
must be targeted, existing strengths 
must be maintained, and desirable new 
strengths must be identified and devel- 

The report recognizes many existing 
strengths and latent opportunities at 
George Washington, noting, however, 
that the current degree of decentral- 
ization often leads to duplication of 
effort and of resources. The George 
Washington University is termed "a 
mature institution, with a deserved 
national image." Recognizing that there 
has been far-reaching emphasis on 
planning over a period of several years, 
the report encourages the University to 
move ahead with implementation. Citing 
particularly the University’s progress 
in the past two decades, the report ob- 
serves, "its trajectory of progress mani- 
fests its own sound inner perceptions 
and gives promise for a future of ful- 
filled aspirations." 

Copies of the report by the Visiting 
Team have been placed on reserve in 
the Gelman library for reading by all 
who are interested. 


At its meeting of Friday, March 11, the 
Faculty Senate adopted a resolution of 
appreciation citing President Lloyd 
H. Elliott for distinguished service. 

Introduced by Professor of Art 
and chairman of the Executive Commit- 
tee of the Senate, Lilien Robinson, the 
resolution noted Dr. Elliott’s length of 
service, his contributions as president 
and chief academic leader, his wisdom, 
unfailing cooperativeness, receptiveness 
to faculty concerns, consideration of 
divergent points of view, and "the di- 
plomacy, congeniality and personal 
warmth that have marked his relation- 
ship with the Faculty Senate and its 
Executive Committee." The resolution, 
adopted by acclamation, was signed by 
former Executive Committee chairmen 
Howard C. Pierpont, John A Morgan 
Jr., Peter P. Hill, and William B. 
Griffith, as well as Professor Robinson. 

The Senate also presented the 
president with a group picture of the 
current members, seated for a session. 

In responding. President Elliott 
thanked the Senate for the citation and 
for "the wonderful feeling of friend- 
ship" which he said he would always 
remember. "I think we have achieved a 
great deal together to the benefit of 
this university," he continued, noting, 
"that has been the objective that has 
overridden any difficulties we had." He 
said the faculty, as represented by the 
Senate, "has, over the years, been on 
the right side of all the issues facing 
the institution." The president express- 
ed appreciation for the Senate’s ^id- 
ance, particularly during the late 1960s 
and early 1970s.

All 1987 exemptions from tax withhold- 
ing authorized by Maryland Tax forms 
MW-507 currently on file in the Uni- 
versity Payroll Services Office will ex- 
pire on April 30 of this year. 

Maryland tax form MW-507, item 
3, allows certain employees who reside 
in Maryland to claim exemption from 
state and county tax withholding by 
certifying that they "did not owe any 
Maryland income tax and had a right to 
a full refund of all income tax with- 
held" for the previous year and that 
they expect a similar situation to exist 
in the current year. 

Employees (usually students), who 
are eligible to continue their 1987 ex- 
emption from tax withholding in 1988, 
must submit a new form MW-507 by 
April 30, 1988. Failure to recertify by 
that date will result in the withholding 
of Maryland taxes as though the em- 
ployee has one withholding allowance. 

Forms MW-507 are available at 
the Records and Benefits Office of Per- 
sormel Services, Building GG, 2125 G

The University has joined a Washington 
Post partnership with students of East- 
ern High School designed to reward ex- 
ceptional academic achievement. 

The program, called The Washing- 
ton Porf/Eastem High School Incentive 
Scholarship Program, will make it pos- 
sible for Eastern High School students 
to accumulate up to $4,000 in scholar- 
ship funds to be used to continue their 

The goals of the program, accord- 
ing to Dr. Vincent Reed, vice presi- 
dent/communications, The Washington 
Post, are "to encourage Eastern stu- 
dents to stay in school, to work for 
solid academic achievements, and to 
pursue a higher education." 

In confirming the University’s 
participation. President Elliott congrat- 
ulated Dr. Reed and his associates at 
The Washington Post on "the leadership 
being given to District of Columbia 
public education with this action." 

The program format provides that 
each semester, any Eastern High School 
student who gets all A’s and/or B’s 
will earn $500 in scholarship funds. A 
student who maintains those grades for 
all eight semesters, or four years, can 
reach the $4,000 figure. Students must 
graduate and enroll in an accredited 

institution (a four-year or two-year 
college or trade school) to receive the 

The partnership between partici- 
pating Eastern students and 16 partici- 
pating institutions, including Cieorge 
Washington, makes it possible for stu- 
dents to increase the funds available to 
them. If a student commits to attending 
a partner institution by the end of 
Semester 1 of the senior year and is 
accepted, the student will receive a 
donation from that institution match- 
ing the funds already earned in the 
Poit/Eastern program. The matching 
money can only be used for tuition, 
room, board or books at the donating 
institution. Students must fulfill their 
commitments to the specific institution 
to take full advantage of matching 
funds. If a student leaves, for any 
reason, he or she forfeits any remain- 
ing matching funds. 

Among other institutions that have 
entered into the partnership are 
Georgetown, American and Howard 
Universities, the Catholic University of 
>ynerica, Princeton and Colgate Univer- 
sities, the University of the District of 
Columbia, the University of Maryland, 
both in College Park and on the East- 
ern Shore, and Towson State University.

"Recent Acquisitions in the Department 
of Special Collections," a wide-ranging 
exhibit of new donations and purchases, 
is currently on view in the Gelman Li- 
brary, second floor. Materials on dis- 
play were selected by members of the 
Special Collections staff to call atten- 
tion to a variety of resources available 
for curricular support and research, and 
to encourage broader interest on the 
part of the University community in 
the library’s collection efforts. 

Recent purchases in the Special 
Collections Department, made possible 
through the generous endowment of 
former University Librarian John 
Russell Mason, the Friends of the Li- 
braries, the chdlenge grant program 
of the National Endowment for the Hu- 
manities and departmental funds, have 
enhanced the strength of Gelman’s 
regional history collection. These 
include manuscripts and organizational 
records, such as the Polly Snackelton 
Papers, the archives of the Greater 
Washington Board of Trade and of the 
Jewish Community Council of Greater 
Washington, the Samuel Shaffer Papers, 
the Washinrton Theater Qub Collection, 
and the J.\^^ Whalen Papers. 

Perspectives on the University 
include the Student Protest Collection, 
materials on the University Archives 
and Records Program, and Images of 
the George Washington University, a 
collection of 60,000 negatives recording 
events at GW from 1967-1984. 

Several donations encompassing 
the sciences, the social sciences and 
the humanities have also been added. 
One exhibit, containing landmark pub- 
lications in a number of fields, includes 
such items as a journal from the 
second session of the U.S. Senate, a 
record of the Constitutional Convention 
of 1787, and an autograph by cartoonist 
Clifford K Berryman, originator of the 
"teddy bear." 

"Recent Acquisitions" will run 
through April. Members of the Special 
Collections staff will be on hand to

HONORS — L to R, Vice President for Academic Affairs Roderick S. French, Presi- 
dent Lloyd H. Elliott, Distinguished Scholars Beth Ann Hooper, Michel G. Haddad, 
Eileen N. Reichenberg, Amy J. Strassler, Stephanie Ann Smith, and Board of Trustees 
Chairman Everett H. Bellows. 


"Your accomplishments have a great 
deal of meamng ... far beyond these 
ceremonies," President Lloyd H. Elliott 
told students being recognized at the 
March 25 Honors Convocation. 

"Society desperately needs educated 
citizens," Elliott said. Referring to the 
poverty, homelessness, hunger, disease, 
illiteracy and civil strife in the world 
today, he observed that "the world 
needs the best brainpower it can 
muster to integrate modern science and 
technology into the fight against 
age-old problems, for the problems 
increasingly beleaguer and threaten to 
overtake us." He told the students 
that, by their accomplishments, they 
had made an impressive start and 
increased their worth to the society in 
which they live. "We hope and encour- 
age you," he said, "to make this but 
the first step in a lifelong process of 
shaping your life creatively and mean- 

In their remarks, all five students 
receiving Distinguished Scholar Awards 
spoke of the value of their experiences 
both in the classroom and in outside 
activities and expressed appreciation to 
the University, their families and 

Stephanie Ann Smith of Columbian 
College described her research in 
physical chemistry and her involvement 
with the American Chemical Society 
Student Affiliates, as well as her 
service as a chemistry peer adviser, 
laboratory teaching assistant and 
tutor. She said three semesters’ piano 
lessons had enriched her years here and 
that she eiyoyed being an active mem- 
ber of the Student Orientation Staff 
and Alpha Epsilon Delta, the premedical 
honor society. She intends to pursue 
doctoral studies in biophysical chem- 
istty at Cornell University. 

The remarks of Michael Haddad, 
the School of Engineering and Applied 
Science Distinguished Scholar, gave an 
insight into the experience of an 
international student. Coming from 
Lebanon to George Washington was not 
easy, he said. He finds himself "the 
making of many factors and efforts" - 
the family he left in Lebanon, the 
country itself, and the extended family 
he found at the University. "As we 
beautify life by the chisel of educa- 
tion," he pointed out, "the true gem in 
each one of us is exposed." Partici- 
pation in the SEAS Honors Research 

Program helped him as did the support 
of the Hariri Educational Foundation of 
Lebanon. Haddad spoke of his country 
as one "that interprets the West to the 
East and presents the East to the 
West." He will seek a master’s degree 
in biomedical engineering and declared 
his intent to use his education to bring 
the world closer to the concepts of St. 
Augustine’s "City of God" and Plato’s 

Beth Ann Hooper of SEHD looked 
back over her student years and de- 
scribed her vision for education. The 
future educational system should have 
two components - a child should be 
educated at his or her present func- 
tional level and education should be 
meaningful to the student. She stated, 
"Only if education has meaning and is 
seen as puiposeful in the eyes of a 
student will the student truly apply him 
or herself to the learning process." 

Her own future will include working 
with students with special needs. 

Eileen N. Reichenberg, the SGBA 
scholar, emphasized the benefits to her 
of campus professional and social 
organizations, particularly those related 
to her studies, residential life and new 
students. She served as a university 
tour guide and as co-chairperson of the 
Student Orientation Staff. She spoke of 
her work with a "big-eight" accounting 
firm last summer when she researched 
issues related to the new tax law. She 
said she had gained a greater sense of 
satisfaction and a higher self-esteem 
from her years at GW. She will sit for 
the Certified Public Accountant examin- 
ation in May. 

In reflecting on her four years at 
GW, Amy J. Strassler of SLA said, 

"What strikes me most is the broader 
perspective I have gained here." She 
noted her studies and experiences 
combined "to paint a richer picture of 
the world" and her role in it; her SIA 
education had allowed her to see the 
interdependency in the world today. 
During her participation last year m 
GW’s program in La Rochelle, France, 
Strassler was an intern with an audio- 
visual production company and was able 
to produce a video about her experi- 
ence there, which included words of 
encouragement to other students to 
take advantage of such an opportunity. 
Observing that the world is complex 
and fascinating, she concluded, "Edu- 
cation and experience are the first 

steps toward understanding the world 
around us, and understanding leads to 
action for the betterment of ourselves 
and our society." 

Vice President for Academic Affairs 
Roderick S. French, in recognizing 
those on the deans’lists, likened students, 
parents and faculty to shareholders with 
a major investment in the community of 


President and Mrs. Lloyd H. Elliott 
were honored by The George Washing- 
ton University Club at a tea on March 
23. They were presented a silver bowl 
with openwork decoration, made in 
Germany in 1880, and were informed 
that the President’s Room of the club 
will be renamed the Betty and Lloyd 
Elliott Room. 

David Brown Weaver, professor 
emeritus of law, who was the club’s 
first president, expressed appreciation 
for Elliott’s support of the club and for 
"the improvement in atmosphere and 
creation of amenities" that he had 
brought to the campus. Current GW 
Club President David Pryor presented 
the bowl to Mrs. Elliott and the presi- 
dent, who termed it "a memorable gift." 
Invited to speak, Mrs. Elliott comment- 
ed, "I do the talking at home. He does 
the talking away from home. I thank 
you from the bottom of my heart." 

University Trustee Hazel Hanback 
introduced former club presidents who 
were present and offered their collec- 
tive thanks to President and Mrs. Elliott 
for their activities in behalf of the club. 

Vice President and Treasurer Charles 
E. Diehl spoke for the faculty and staff 
in commenting on the institution’s 
growth under the president’s leadership. 

The announcement of the renaming 
of the President’s Room for the Elliotts 
was made by Alvin E. Jensen, former 
associate dean of the College of Gen- 
eral Studies. 

"By any measure, this club has 
added a tremendous dimension to the 
unity of the University," the president 
said in expressing his appreciation, 
adding that "our time at the University 
has added up to 23 years of pleasure 
for Betty and me." 

GfV CLUB TEA — Theodore P. Perros, 
professor of chemistry and of forensic 
sciences, was one of some 300 members 
of the University community who came 
to greet President and Mrs. Lloyd H. 
Elliott at the March 23 tea in their honor 
hosted by the GW University Club. David 
Pryor, club president, is in the center. 


During the last semester, the University 
received three grants of microcomputer 
equipment from Apple Computer, In- 
corporated, valued at approximately 
$100,000, based on retail market value. 

The School of Education and Hu- 
man Development received 11 various 
models of Apple Macintosh and Apple 
II-GS computers and associated equip- 
ment to establish a laboratory in

Eshan Arifi, representative of the 
Afghan Mujahadeen, said the presence 
of the Soviet military in Afghanistan 
has devastated the small country. His 
April 5 lecture in the Marvin Center 
was part of International Week ’88. 

Arifi told of incidents of looting, 
murder and kidnapping that he attri- 
butes to Soviet determination "to 
uproot and annihilate the entire Afghan 
population." One million people have 
oeen killed and some 5 million have 
fled into Pakistan, Afghanistan’s 
southern neighbor, Anfi said. 

He sees little hope in diplomatic 
overtures currently being made by the 
Soviets, and contends that the "with- 
drawal of six regiments in 1986 was 
clearly a ruse." Those were forces 
that were not involved in the fighting 
or had completed their tour in Afghan- 
istan, he added. And, the removal of 
such a small force, he said, does not 
lessen the Russian presence in 

Afghanistan, a mountainous 
country roughly the size of Texas, 

Arifi said, is populated by approxi- 
mately 16 million people, 99 percent of 
whom are Muslim. Soviet troOTs first 
entered the country in 1979. The 
ensuing controversy has captured and 
continues to receive international 
attention, he noted.

FESTIVAL — Members of the troupe 
Sangre Boliviana were among the large 
number of musicians and dancers who 
appeared in the April 5 Latin American 
Festival in the Marvin Center, part of 
International Week ’88. 


"I think eventually the Sandinistas and 
the Contras are going to coalesce out 
of necessity as participants in a 
peace-time government," said Daniel 
Masis-Iverson of the University of 
Costa Rica, speaking on campus April 4. 

He made the prediction during the 
question and answer period following a 
panel discussion, "Central America; The 
Prospects for Peace," sponsored by 
CASA (The Center for Advanced Studies 
of the Americas) in cooperation with 
the School of International Affairs and 
part of International Week ’88. 

Enrique Pumar, lecturer. Depart- 
ment of Politics, The Catholic Umver- 
sity of America, one of three panel- 
ists, commented "The Contras, who are 
inside making the revolution, want a 
piece of the pie. Unless there were a 
milit^ threat, the Sandinistas would 
not give concessions." He likened the 
Arias Peace Plan to the United Nations 
in that it provided a way for the 
Sandinistas and the Contras to sit down 
and talk without loosing face. 

Masis-Iverson, a CASA visiting 
scholar, said that once conditions can 
be established for an electoral contest 
in Nicaragua, although the Contras may 
say they were out fighting while those 
who stayed in the country merely had 
shortages to face, not bullets, still the 
two groups will probably both take part 
in govermnent. 

Panelist Mark Everingham, GW 
master’s candidate in political science, 
expressed the view that once civic and 
economic leaders like former civilian 
Contra figure Alfonso Robelo return to 
Nicaragua or continue to plague the 
Sandimstas, "that’s where the 
Sandinistas will be able to offer 

Moderator and commentator for 
the panel was Cynthia McClintock, 
associate professor of political science. 
She discussed U.S. policy towards Latin 
American revolutions and differences 
between the Cuban and Nicaraguan 
revolutions, which were key topics of 
the panelists’ papers. The panel was 
the second half of a CASA-sponsored 
conference on conflict and cooperation 
in the Americas.

CONVERSATION — LtoR, President Lloyd H. Elliott, GSAS Dean Henry Solomon, 
and President John S. Toll of the University of Maryland, shared a light moment 
during the March 30 symposium. 


A wide range of ideas was presented 
regarding the future of the Ph.D. 
degree at the afternoon panel session 
of the March 30 symposium organized 
to observe the centennial of the 
doctorate at The George Washington 
University. The symposium also 
honored President Lloyd H. Elliott in 
the final year of his presidency. 

Umversity Trustee Robert 
McC. Adams, secretary of the Smith- 
sonian Institution, served as moderator 
of the session, titled "Doctoral Educa- 
tion in Prospect." Panel members were 
George F. Cahill Jr., vice president for 
training, Howard Hughes Medical Insti- 
tute; Phyllis P. Franldin, executive 
director. Modern Language Association; 
Alexander MacLachlen, senior vice 
president for science and technology, 
the Du Pont Company; and John R 
Slaughter, chancellor, the University of 
Maryland. Respondent was Julius P. 
Lapidus, president of the Council of 
Graduate Schools. 

The ideas which emerged indicated 
changes in the fields of education, 
science and technology, and in the 
scholarly community as a whole. 

In education, several panelists 
noted the need for greatly increased 
support for blacks, Hispanics and native 
Americans to be able to complete work 
toward the doctorate and to be given 
opportunity to advance as teachers at 
the graduate level. The trend, in many 
institutions, toward preparing doctoral 
candidates for teaching was noted. 

In the fields of science and 
technology, those attending learned that 
flexibility will be increasingly prized in 
the corporate world. Further, it was 
stated that Ph.D. holders working in 
industry must be problem definers as 
well as problem solvers and have 
demonstrated ability to move them- 
selves in new directions. 

With regard to research, it was 
pointed out that in the future, more 
research will be done in teams. TTie 
genius of the individual was still 
ercieved as the real key to progress 
ut team work was regarded as 
essential. The increasing internation- 
alization of the nature of scholarship 
and research was highlighted, as well 
as a growing interdependence among 
scholars all over the world. 

One responsibility of every citizen 
was defined as that of trying to under- 
stand complex and technics issues 
since alarms and mistrust can make it 
difficult for research institutions to 
accomplish their work. As a corollary, 
it was stated that risks in today’s world 
cannot be eliminated, but they can be 

A question was introduced as to 
whether the current divisions of schol- 
arship are becoming outdated. This 
question was seen as possibly one of 
the most divisive facing the community 
of scholars today. There appeared to 
be agreement that the scholarly 
community needs to respond to such 
questions and to retain some kind of 
responsibility for long-range scholarship 
and research.

selected by the SGBA Alumni 
Association as 1988 Alumna of the 
Year. Her achievements in government 
and academic administration are seen as 
complemented by her service to civic 

When Loeser became dean in 1978, 
she was the first woman to head a 
major school of business in the United 
States. Prior to her appointment, she 
had been managing director of the Civil 
Aeronautics Board and a commissioner 
on the Defense Manpower Commission. 
Her current board memberships include 
the American Red Cross Endowment 

She has been an SGBA faculty 
member since 1966 when she became a 
university fellow in business administra- 
tion following her retirement from 
active duty as a lieutenant colonel in 
the United States Air Force. During 
her milit^ career, she rose to become 
deputy director of women in the Air 
Force, developing militaiy personnel 
programs for women which were 
instituted throughout the service. 

As a professor of business 
administration, Loeser is particularly 
interested in the subjects of contem- 
porary personnel management and top 
executive leadership in large organiza- 
tions. In addition to the doctorate, 
she holds B.A. (1958) and M.B.A. (1967) 
degrees from the University. She will

Harold Skramstad, president of the 
Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield 
Village, will serve as the keynote 
speaker at the anniversary luncheon on 
April 23. He will discuss a new exhibit 
featuring the impact of the automobile

Howard Gillette, chair of the 
American Studies Program, believes the 
convocation will demonstrates that 
there is much more to American studies 
than teaching grade school children 
about the Revolutionary War. According 
to Gillette, the program reaches beyond 
the study of history. It has developed 
into an interdepartmental study which 
also examines literature, the arts and 
the social sciences for their contribu- 
tions toward shaping our nation.

As of this year, a Records Management 
Program has been set up as an 
expansion of the University Achives 
practice of collecting printed works 
produced in any part of the University. 

The Records Management 
Program, supported by a two-year grant 
from the National Historical Publi- 
cations and Records Commission, will 
conduct a records survey for each unit 
in the University. Based on this survey, 
a retention and disposition schedule 
will be developed for each unit. 

The program will operate under 
the following guidelines: 

1) The records created by 
University administrators and faculty 
members in performance of assigned 
administrative duties are the property 
of The George Washington University. 

2) These records are to be 
handled in accordance with the re- 
tention and disposition schedule 
developed from the records survey. 

3) The University Achives is to 
be the official depository for records of 
enduring administrative and/or 
historical significance. Exceptions to 
this provision may be negotiated during 
the records survey. 

4) The University Achivist has 
the responsibility for the identification 
and systematic transfer of inactive 
records from the individual offices to 
the University Achives. 

Requests for confidentiality for 
internal documents will be strictly 
honored. David Aderson, the Univer- 
sity Achivist, will contact each unit 
with records survey information in the 
near future. 

President Lloyd H. Elliott has said 
that he hopes all units will give 
Aderson "full support in this 
important undertaking." 


The Gewirz Center of the Washington 
B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundation at The 
George Washington University was 
dedicated in a 6 p.m. ceremony on 
Sunday, April 17. 

Carl Gewirz, president of the 
Washington B’nai B’rith Board of 
Governors, who officiated at the 
dedication, noted that the center was 
opening almost exactly 40 years from 
the day of its founding at GW and that 
it had taken 40 months to build it. He 
said it is "the best space ship in the 
Hillel galaxy." The center is called the 
Gewirz Center in recognition of the 
continuing interest of members of the 
Gewirz family in Hillel at George 

Vice President for Student Afairs 
William P. Smith conveyed the congrat- 
ulations of the University to Hillel as 
well as good wishes for the future. 

Special guest Robert Clary, 
Holocaust survivor and actor, known 
for his appearances in "Hogan’s Heroes" 
and "Days of our lives," called the 
center "magnificent." He added, "What 
you have to do is see that the young 
students come here and get involved." 

Leonard Fine, author and editor of 
Moment magazine, in brief remarks, 
commented on the increase in programs 
of Jewish studies in American colleges 
and universities since the 1950s. Of 
Hillel, he said, "At its best, Hillel is a 
presence that lays open to our young 
people not only what we have experi- 
enced but what we have dreamed. 

Today, it is perhaps doubly important 
to focus on Hillel’s own possibilities." 

Mrs. Frances Gewirz, Hillel 
founding member, presented the key to 
the building to Evan Schweitzer, 
president of the Hillel Student Board. 
She called it "a symbol of worth, 
friendliness and happiness." 

In his closing prayer, GW Hillel 
Director Rabbi Gerald Serotta said in 
part, "We have gathered to dedicate the 
Gewirz Center to further our Jewish 
heritage and for the benefit of our 
fellow human beings." 

The Gewirz Center, adjacent to 
the GW campus at 23rd and H Streets, 
N.W., designed by the architectural firm 
of Imas Gruner A.I.A. and Asociates 
and constructed by Volpe Construction 
Company, is intended to serve the 
cultural, religious, academic and 
community needs of the nearly 5,000 
Jewish students at George Washington. 
The center will also offer many 
activities and resources to the 
community at large.

While he was on a short family vaca- 
tion in March, Don Runyon, assistant 
treasurer for business affairs, saved the 
lives of two swimmers in the Gulf of 

He and his brother-in-law were 
sailing off Marco Island when they saw 
two men out in the water, between the 
Florida shore and a small island. One 
of them called faintly for help. Runyon 
and his companion turned the sailboat 
to try to assist them and found they 
were too weak to climb in the boat. 
Runyon dived into the gulf with the 
life jackets he and his brother-in-law 
had been wearing, assisted the swim- 
mers in putting them on and slowly 
swam in to shore with them. 

The whole rescue operation took 
about 30 minutes. "They were in serious 
trouble. The tide was strong and the 
water was well over their heads. It was 
hard work pulling them in," recalls 
Runyon, who was a member of his high 
school swimming team in Midland, 
Michigan. He said the two men thanked 
him in both Spanish and English.

In a day-long symposium on violence in 
the Andes, held on campus April 29, 
over 75 Andean specialists and graduate 
students examined causes and currents 
of unrest. 

One of the principal conclusions 
to emerge was that the encounter 
between Western and Andean worlds, 
dating back to the 16th century Spanish 
invasion, has continued to fuel a 
protracted political and ideological 
struggle for control over the material 
basis of society down to the present day. 

The symposium, sponsored by the 
School of International Affairs, the 
Washington Office on Latin America, 
and the Office of the Vice President 
for Academic Affairs, was organized by 
Professor of History Peter F. Klaren, 
director of the Latin American 
Studies Program. 

In a discussion of culture and 
religious conflict, Wilson Center Fellow 
Max Hernandez noted that because of 
the complexity of the confrontation 
between the two worlds, it is necessary 
to take into account the constant 
contradictions of the historical 
situation. Sara Castro-Klaren of the 
Johns Hopkins University pointed out 
that once the material base of Andean 
society was rent asunder by the 
invading Spaniards, the ideological base 
became the center of struggle as the 
Andean peoples refashioned their 
religious beliefs to withstand the 
imposition of Christianity, the ultimate 
tool of Spanish domination. 

In a panel on "Political Parties, 
the State and Institutionalized 
Violence," Georgetown University 
political scientist Arturo Valenzuela 
and GW’s Cynthia McClintock drew 
parallels in the Chilean and Peruvian 
political panorama, showing how the 
electorate, after years of nulitary rule, 
still remains, in the late 1980s, 
substantially divided into thirds - left, 
center and right. This separation, 
which has followed a recurrent pattern 
in both countries since the 1950s, was 
seen to reflect the deep and enduring 
cultural, economic and political 
divisions that have plagued Andean 
society over the centuries. 

A concluding panel on "Human 
Rights," headed by Alexander Wilde of 
the Washington Office on Latin 
America, closed the symposium on a 
somber note, tracing the continuing 
pattern of human rights abuses 
throughout the region. 

The symposium marked the 
second year of the George Washington 
University Seminar on Andean Culture 
and Politics, which regularly convenes

At an afternoon all-campus recep- 
tion, Vice President and Treasurer 
Charles E. Diehl read a resolution, 
passed by the Council of the District of 
Columbia proclaiming April 28 Lloyd 
H. Elliott Day. 

The resolution called Elliott "a 
major force in the educational 
community" and noted the growth of 
the University under his tenure, his 
encouragement of cooperation between 
George Washington and D.C. Public 
Schools through the Equal Opportunity 
Program, the development of the 
University into D.C.’s largest private 
employer, his support of the United 
Way and the Umversity’s provision of 
medical and legal assistance to those 
who could not otherwise afford it, as 
well as the cultural and educational 
opportunities provided for D.C. 
residents. The resolution also 
highlighted ties between the University 
and the District, such as the GW 
Center for Washington Area Studies and 
the Board of Trade Archives in Gelman 
Library. It was further stated that 
"Uoyd H. Elliott has been faithful to 
the vision of a private, nonsectarian 
university responsive to the needs of 
the community." 

A highlight of the program was 
the unveihng of a portrait of President 
Elliott, a gift from the Board of 
Trustees, done by artist Ned Bittinger, 
a GW alumnus (M.F.A. 1983). Board 
Chairman Everett H. Bellows remarked 

that the portrait will remain at the 
University "for ages to come." 

Provost William D. Johnson, in 
brief remarks, thanked President Elliott 
for "quiet, dedicated, rational and 
persistent leadership." 

In responding to the tributes, 
Elliott said he thanked "both the 
University and the city." He continued, 
"I want to thank Adam Freedman and, 
through him, the students who have 
responded to the needs of the city." 
Elliott told the more than 300 guests 
crowding the Marvin Center bdlroom, 
"You know that I am not immodest in 
my ambitions for this University. 

. . . This University must be and will 
be one of the greatest institutions of 
learning in the world and I thank you 
for what you have done in helping it 
on its way."

yiRCS SCHOLAR Jim Templeman, center, with ARCS Foundation, Inc. national 
president Mrs. George Mueller, right, and Washington Metropolitan Chapter president 
Mrs. David Wilkinson 


James N. (Jim) Templeman, a doctoral 
candidate in the School of Engineering 
and Applied Science, was named ARCS 
Scholar of the Year by the national 
organization Achievement Rewards for 
College Scientists (ARCS) on May 5. 
Templeman was honored during the 
organization’s national convention in 
Washington. Following award 
ceremonies, he met with William 
R. Graham, President Reagan’s science 

Mrs. George Mueller, national 
ARCS Foundation president said 
Templeman was selected because of his 
"dedication to study, teaching and 
research in [a] highly technical field" 
which makes him "a model for students 
in the sciences nationwide." 

In informal remarks at the 
convention, Templeman said he feels it 
is "important to let young people know 
there is a lot of research still out 
there to be done." 

SEAS Dean Harold Liebowitz, 
speaking to the 300 ARCS delegates, 
said of Templeman, "He is quite simply 
one of the most brilliant students we 
have ever had. He has had a 4.0 
average. You have to be a 
near-genius. Not all those geniuses are 
that socially adjusted, but Jim is." 

Now entering the research phase 
of his doctoral program, Templeman is 
studying the human visual system, in 
particular, the visual cortex with the 
primary goal of gaining an 
understanding of how it works and of 
how the eye sees. His minor areas of 
study in the doctoral program include 
neurobiology and psychology. He 
taught two graduate courses in Spring 
Semester, 1988: Advanced Programming 
Languages and Special Topics in 
Computer Science - Neurophysiology 
and Artificial Intelligence. 

Templeman, who was born without 
arms, drives a specially constructed car 
and operates his computers with his 
feet. He attended public school classes 
in the District of Columbia and later in 
Springfield, Virginia, where he moved 
with his parents at age 7. He is a 
1973 graduate of West Springfield High 
School and holds two GW degrees: 

B.S. (E.E.) with distinction, 1977 and 
M.S. in computer science, 1978. 

After receiving his undergraduate 
degree, Templeman formed a computer 
graphics firm. Iconographies, with a 
partner in Falls Church, Virginia. The 
firm was dissolved after a few years 

when his partner decided to bring up a 
family and Templeman became more 
interested in research. 

Templeman received scholarship 
aid from tne Washington Metropolitan 
chapter of the ARCS Foundation, 

Inc. in the 1987-88 academic year. He 
was chosen ARCS scholar of the year 
from 13 nominees presented by the 
ARCS chapters to the organization’s 
national executive board. The selection 
was solely on merit. 

ARCS was founded in California in 
1958 to support science studies after 
the Soviets launched Sputnilq the first 
manmade space satellite. Since then, 
ARCS has awarded approximately 3,200 
scholarships worth a total of $10.2 
million, including 279 scholarships 
worth $1.2 million this year. Since 
1970, 47 ARCS scholarship awards 
totaling $159,754 have been made to 
GW students. 


United States Representative Morris 
K. Udall (D-AZ) and President 
Samuel O. Thier of the Institute of 
Medicine, National Academy of Sciences 
will address law and medical graduates 
respectively in commencement 
ceremonies on Sunday, May 22, and 
Friday, May 27. President Lloyd 
H. Elliott will confer honorary degrees 
and degrees in course at both events. 

The National Law Center 
commencement is scheduled for 1:30 
m. in the Charles E. Smith Center, 
dall, chairman of the House Interior 
and iMular Affairs Committee, wnll 
receive an honorary degree of Doctor 
of Laws. Some 500 degrees in course 
will be awarded. 

The School of Medicine and 
Health Sciences ceremony will take 
place at 11 a.m. in Lisner Auditorium. 
President Thier will receive an 
honorary degree of Doctor of Science, 
honoris causa. Degrees in course will 
be conferred on approximately 143 
new doctors. Bachelor of Science 
degrees will go to five Allied 
Health professionals. 

The some 1,800 graduates at the six 
commencement ceremonies held May 8 
shared the benefit of the diverse 
experiences of the day’s speakers. 

Industrialist T. Boone Pickens 
told SGBA graduates that the most 
important quality in a good leader is 
willingness to make decisions. Noting 
that there is no substitute for good 
research, Pickens also stressed patience, 
moderation and good organization as 
criteria for success. He commented, 
"What I see with today’s young people 
is a new entrepreneurial spirit and a 
return to free market principles. 

Frankly, what I see excites me for our 
countr/s future." 

Admiral William J. Crowe Jr., 
USN, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of 
Staff, noted that the need for American 
statesmen is the most urgent problem 
in government today and offered "some 
home-cooked advice" for those entering 
government service. He said, "Early in 
your career, identify the front-runners 
m your organization who can make the 
necessary possible - study their 
experience, make their techniques your 
own, and absorb both their knowledge 
and their wisdom." Crowe noted the 
importance of a sense of humor, 
commenting, "Laughter is an essential 
part of remaining humble, relaxed and 
m touch with reality." 

Bassam Z. Shakhashiri, assistant 
director of the National Science 
Foundation for Science and Engineering 
Education, assured graduates of the 
School of Education and Human 
Development that "the immediate future 
of this nation is very bright." He 
noted that the country’s future is 
intricately tied to the "need for a good 
supply of scientists, mathematicians and 
engineers." Emphasizing the need for 
the public to become scientifically 
literate, he charged the graduates to 
participate actively in society and to 
consider careers in public service. 

George Walter Landau, a former 
U.S. Ambassador, now president of the 
Americas Society, used his own life 
story to illustrate his points. He 
encouraged graduates of Columbian 
College of Arts and Sciences to "think 
about what you want to get out of 
life. One strand which is always woven 
into anyone’s thought of happiness is 
success - a goal best reached through 
persistence and determination." 

David Canfield has been appointed 
executive director of medical center 
development for The George Wash- 
ington University, effective July 1. 

Canfield will serve as a senior 
member of the staff of Vice President 
for Development and University 
Relations Michael J. Worth and will be 
assigned to the Medical Center. He 
will work closely with Acting Vice 
President for Medical Affairs 
L. Thompson Bowles, Medical center 
deans, department chairs and faculty 
members in the development of 
financial support to meet Medical 
Center needs. 

Canfield comes to George 
Washington from the Johns Hopkins 
Institutions, where he has served for 13 
years. He first served as director of 
development and alumni affairs for the 
School of Medicine. Later he was 
named executive director of the Fund 

Nuclear physicist Edward Teller, 
speaking to engineering graduates at 
the SEAS commencement, called the 
20th century the "Century of 
Technology." He speculated that 
electronics with its effects on 
communication and the development of 
modern computers may have been the 
century’s most important achievement. 
Teller, who recalled that he came to 
the United States in 1935 as a young 
professor of physics at The George 
Washington University, said he never 
thought, that half a century later, he 
would be speaking to a graduating 
class. He charged the new graduates 
"to explain the achievements of 20th 
century technology, so that the wider 
human community can absorb the new 
ideas and put them to proper use." 

Hermann A. Grander, a 
world-known accelerator physicist, told 
Graduate School of Arts and Sciences 
degree recipients, "To accomplish 
something within society, you will have 
to set priorities, build consensus and 
follow through." He pointed out that, 
as a society, we have great difficulties 
with these three simple steps, partly 
because of enormous budget deficits 
and partly because of conflicts in 
decision-making. "The size and 
complexity of the issues a society is 
willing to tackle will set the scale for 
the rewards," he commented, adding 
that "frontier science, brilliantly 
executed by vigorous young minds, is 
worth the resources it requires." 

GRADUATES of SGBA at the May 8 
Commencement had two thoughts — 
jobs and Mother’s Day.

A native of Boston, Canfield is a 
1959 graduate of Williams College. 


NEW OFFICERS were sworn in May 7 at the U.S. Naval Memorial during the 
commissioning ceremony of the NROTC unit at GW. 


"You are special people," Vice Admiral 
Joseph Metcalf III, USN (Ret.), told 30 
midshipmen waiting to be commissioned 
in a May 7 ceremony at the Navy 
Memorial. He was addressing the class 
of 1988 in the Naval ROTC unit at 
The George Washington University. 

Metcalf emphasized to them the 
importance of their developing into 
thorough professionals, of their 
responsibilities and of holding on to 
moral principles and values. He also 
pointed out that they would become 
"part of the peace equation." 

Declaring that the function of the 
U.S. Navy is deterrence, the admiral 
told the group, "You are all part of the 
chain of deterrence." Metcalf 
commented he had seen a banner in 
Lafayette Park which read, "Blessed are 
the peace makers." He said to the 
class, "You are the peace makers." 

President Lloyd H. Elliott, in brief 
remarks, told the graduates, "Your 
country and your University ask two 
things of you - that you increase your 
skills, adding to your understanding of 
the world and that you make the most 
of your abilities and talents." 

The new officers, 29 commissioned 
in the Navy and one in the Marine 
Corps, are going to assignments in all 
parts of the United States. In 
addition, one will go to Japan and one 
to Spain. 


Lee Hunter, who has served as director 
of GW Television since 1982, has 
announced his intention to retire June 

Prior to joining the University, 
Hunter had an extended professional 
career in television, both with 
commercial networks and universities. 
He was vice president for engineering 
and production at WMAL-TV (now 
WJLA-TV) and helped in the 
development of unique and innovative 
television and communications facilities 
at Gallaudet College. 

President Lloyd H. Elliott, on

The Gelman Library has acquired a 
collection of Yiddish books from the 
National Yiddish Book Center in 
Amherst, Massachusetts. 

Jonathan Sunshine, Washington 
representative of the center, speaking 
at a June 14 program in observance 
of the collection’s arrival at Gelman, 
said that saving Yiddish books is "an 
important act of cultural 
preservation." He noted that the 
Yiddish produced in barely a century 
(a 75-year period, up to 1935) a 
modern literature of the first rank. 
"Yiddish poetry was staccato in 
rhythm, presenting the dilemmas of 
modern life," Sunshine commented. 
He said the National Yiddish Book 
Center has been created to stem the 
losses of Yiddish books worldwide. 

Books have been saved from 
basements and dumpsters. Sunshine 
remarked. The week of June 6, a 
Yiddish collection was dedicated at 
♦he University of Melbourne, 
Australia, to assure that the Yiddish 
part of Jewish culture will be 
preserved there, he stated. 

"I congratulate George 
Washington for being among the 
pioneers in developing its Yiddish 
library," Sunshine said, "the next task 
is to develop a new generation of 
Yiddish scholars." He continued, 
"The acquisition of this collection by 
GW shows its dedication to the 
purpose of a university as the 
preservation of man’s cultural legacy 
and its transmission to old 
and young." 

Max Ticktin, assistant professor 
of Hebrew, noted that Yiddish is 
centuries older that Chaucerian 
English and that Yiddish literature, as 
a whole, goes back hundreds 
of years. He told those attending 
from the community that GW has 
courses in Yiddish, part of the broad 
offerings in Judaic studies at 
the Umversity. 

University Librarian Sharon 
J. Rogers said the 500-book 
collection was purchased with a grant 
from the National Endowment for the 
Humanities and that there are 16 
categories. The titles in the 
collection are being entered in the 
Gelman database and the books have 
been prepared for shelving. 


The University is negotiating for the 
purchase of a house at 2241 Bancroft 
Place as a residence for the 
president. This property is a short 
distance from the current residence 
at 2330 Tracy Place. This action is 
being taken at the direction of the 
Board of Trustees in order to provide 
a residence that can accommodate 
institutional entertaining and 
social events. 

Consideration had been given 
to renovation of the currently 
owned house at Tracy Place. It 
was determined that an expenditure 
of several hundred thousand dollars 
would be needed to make the kind of 
improvements that would accom- 
modate the needs already met by the 
new residence. Tracy place is more 
suited to family living, while the 
interior design of Bancroft Place 
lends itself effectively to functions 
for both small and large groups. 

It is expected that negotiations 
for the new residence will be 
completed within a month. Tracy 
Place will be sold once the new 
residence is purchased. 


Ollantay, a Bolivian band, will 
perform music from the Andes 
mountains, during the free lisner at

instrument; quena, an open flute made 
of cane or bone; bombo, a type of 
drum; the guitar and maracas. 

Ollantay bases its songs on 
pre-Columbian music and the 
traditional rhythms developed after 
the Spanish conquest of the Andean 
region of present-day Argentina, 
Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and Peru. 

The 45-minute performance is 
open to the public. Listeners are 
invited to bring a bag lunch, relax 
and enjoy the music.

and biology. 

The capability of computers is 
increasing by a factor of 10 roughly 
every five years, she said, and the 
coming capability of a trillion 
operations per second in a computer 
will allow, among other things, 
weather forecasts based on scientific 
predictions, (not just recent history) 
and mineral mapping via seismic 
"pictures" of the earth. The 

U. S. has begun to develop a 
National Research Network which will 
allow educational and research 
institutions access to the world’s 
most powerful computers. This 
capability will allow scientists around 
the world to communicate with each 
other on a daily basis. 

In transportation, there will be 
a prototype aircraft by the turn of 
the century. This Mach 25 aircraft 
will be able to take off and land on 
conventional runways and will burn 
on-board hydrogen and turbo-charged 
oxygen from the atmosphere. 

Delivery of satellites to low earth 
orbit will thus become a common 
event. There will be a kind of 
"Orient Express," a Mach 6-10 
aircraft that will be able to reach 
any place in the world in two hours 
or less. Superconductors will become 
common elements of auto- 
mobile motors. 

In biology, by 2 000, important 
chromosomes involved in DNA repair 
or cancer will have been mapped and 
sequenced. It w<ll be possible to 
identify diseases early m life and 
provide missing protein to contribute 
to their cure. It may be possible to 
go to a laboratory and create a 
protein to do a particular job. The 
quality of food crops and the 
environment can be improved and 
waste streams of industry can be 
cleaned up. 

One of three speakers at the 
orientation, Berger, assistant 
director for life sciences. Office of 
Science and Technology Policy, 
Executive Office of the President, 
followed Robert H. Oswald, director. 
Army Research and Technology, 
Office of the Assistant Secretary of 
the Army, and Robert Ryan, director. 
Special Programs, Office of 
Naval Research. 

The Institute for Disease Prevention 
of The George Washington University 
Medical Center is sponsoring a series 
of "brown bag" lectures related to 
diet, foods and good health. The 
lectures are part of a new "Gold 
Plan" program which will Include 
low-fat and low-cholesterol entrees in 
the Hospital Cafeteria. The noon to 
1p.m. sessions will be held Fridays in 
the Hospital Auditorium. 

"Foods that Prevent Cancer" will 
be the subject addressed by 
Dr. Oliver Alabaster, Director, 
Institute for Disease Prevention, 

July 8. 

Oswald urged the students not 
just to learn from the book in the 
labs but to see how science is built, 

"a stone at a time." He told them, 
"This summer is important for the 
rest of your life, you’ll see the 
wealth of opportunities for engineers 
and scientists. . . You’re there to 
sample." He said the Army is proud 
of its participation in the apprentice 
programs which help not only the 
military, but the United States as 
well. (Dswald encouraged the students 
to go on for graduate study. Noting 
the large number of international 
students in American graduate 
schools, he commented, "We are 
training our competition." 

Ryan enjoined the students to 
seek adventure, to find heroes and to 
take responsibility. He recommended 
some kind of sports activity and 
"adventures of the mind." Ryan 
emphasized it is the apprentices’ 
responsibility to seek out the 
adventure, to question those they will 
be working with. "You’re the top of 
the list," he added, in a reference to 
the thousands who apply yearly for 
the apprentice programs. 

During the question and answer 
period, one young man asked the 
speakers, "Does it get hard after a 
whil^? Do );ou run out of questions, 
research topics?" All three assured 
him, in separate responses, that it is 
quite the contrary, that as the 
researcher opens up one door, 
another is there, and as more and 
more tools are developed, more 
questions come. Dr. Berger said, 
"There is just going to be a whole 
new territory. There is an incredibly 
exciting world out there." 

CONVERSATION - L to R, Beverly 
Berger of the White House Office of 
Science and Technology Policy; 
Marilyn Krupshaw, director of the 
Science and Engineering Apprentice 
Programs; and Arthur Sass, head.

In order to provide improved service 
to those call Ext. 46706 for 
emergencies or minor maintenance, 
the Physical Plant Department (PPD) 
has installed a mechanism which will 
record all conversations conducted on 
that number. The recordings are 
meant to assist in training new PPD 
personnel and in clarifying, after the 
fact, past conversations. Recordings 
will be retained for a minimum 
of 30 days. 

To find and listen to a 
conversation, it is essential that the 
date and time of the conversation be 
known. Therefore, PPD encourages 
all callers to note the ticket number 
given on the tape at the time of the 
call. The ticket number is a record 
of the time of receipt of the call and 
facilitates later tracing 
of the conversation.

Ambassador Han, left, and President Trachtenberg, at the Chinese book collection 


Ambassador Han Xu of the People’s 
Republic of China presented 1,000 
Chinese books to the University in an 
August 11 ceremony in the 
Gelman Library. 

The ambassador said he was 
delighted to present the collection on 
behalf of China’s State Education 
Commission, "especially during the 
initial stages of Dr. Trachtenberg’s 
presidency." He noted the increased 
interest in China throughout the 
United States in the past one or two 
decades and the unprecedented 
number of Americans studying the 
Chinese language and other aspects 
of China. He called the George 
Washington Department of East Asian 
Languages and Literatures, chaired by 
Dr. Chung Wen Shih, "one of the 
most outstanding in the country." He 
spoke of George Washington as "an 
institution whose devotion to 
teaching, research and service is 
balanced with a powerful 
involvement in national and 
international affairs." 

Ambassador Han also took note of 
the 130 students and scholars from 
China at George Washington and the 
12 scholarships offered by the 
University to Chinese students. 

"I cannot tell you how pleased I 
am to be here for this occasion," 

Trachtenberg said. Pointing out that 
it was the 11th day of his 
presidency, he commented, "I take it 
as a sign of good fortune that we are 
receiving these volumes. May the 
books and the bridge of friendship 
that they represent be symbolic of 
peace between our peoples,, now and 
tor the future. I hope that together 
George Washington and the People’s 
Republic of China will go from 
strength to strength and that there 
will be many exchanges of students 
and faculty for years to come." 

University Librarian Sharon J. 
Rogers, in brief remarks, said that 
the books covering a wide range of 
topics, including Chinese politics, 
economics, the arts, education, 
geography and history, are "truly an 
enriching addition to the University 
collection." The Chinese books will 
be in several different locations in 
Gelman, she stated, with some of 
them in the Sino-Soviet Information 
Center. "You are also enriching 
libraries here in the Washington area 
through inter-libraty loan and 
throughout the United States, through 
the OCLC (Online Computer Library 
Center) terminals," Rogers told 
Ambassador Han. 

The collection includes volumes 
in both Chinese and English. 


A "last number dialed" feature is now 
available on all System 85 voice 
terminals, according to the 
Department of Telecommuni- 
cations Systems. 

This feature allows the user to 
have the system automatically call 
the last number dialed v(dth one 
simple command. 

The feature functions for all 
numbers dialed (campus, dial 9 - local 
and long distance-domestic). When 
activating the feature for a domestic 
long distance call, the system will 

dial the complete number and the 
caller will hear the beep-beep-beep 
ton e requiring the insertion of the 
user’s authorization code. The 
system will not re-dial the 
authorization code. 

To activate the feature: 

Lift the receiver, hear the dial tone, 
dial #1. The system will then dial the 
last number dialed. 

For answers to questions about 
this or any other telephone feature, 
call Telecommunications Customer 
Service at 45530. 


President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg 
will be the speaker at the 1988 
Opening Convocation on Friday, 
September 9, at 12:30 p.m. in Lisner 
Auditorium. This will be his first 
major address to the University 

All units of the University are 
invited to attend the convocation and 
to join in the procession which will 
begin at noon in the courtyard of 
Gelman Library and wind through the 
campus to Lisner Auditorium. 

A Scottish pipe band and a 
color guard from the NROTC Unit at 
the University will be at the head of 
the procession which will pick up 
marchers as it moves through 
the campus. 

An all-University reception will 
follow the convocation. 


On his third day in office, August 3, 
President Trachtenberg was honored 
at a reception sponsored by the 
Department of Public Administration’s 
Master of Association Management 
Degree Program. 

Trachtenberg, who is also 
professor of public administration, 
was welcomed with brief remarks by 
Department of Public Administration 
Chairman Kathryn Newcomer. 

The president said he has a long 
interest in associations and that a 
battety of tests he took as a young 
man indicated that he ought to 
become director of the Y.M.C.A. He 
pointed out that how he spends his 
working day as a university president 
is not too different from the way 
most association executives spend 
theirs. "We don’t make things. What 
we are dealing with is ideas and the 
management of people," Trachtenberg 
stated, adding, "to some extent we 
are all kindred souls." 

Trachtenberg told the some 60 
association executives and public 
administration faculty members 
gathered in the George Washington 
University Club that he believes 
Washington is exactly the right place 
for developing a body of theory 
and an academic core in 
association management.

RECEPTION - President Trachtenberg, left, talked with, I to r, Kamal Stblini of the Ir^mation Center, 
Wendy Wagowitz and Susan Roman of the Student Orientation Staff at the Au^t 25 President's 
Reception, part of Orientation Week. 


President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, 
in a speech S^tember 7 to the Faculty 
Assembly, said that what we most 
need "is a renaissance of the value 
called responsibility." 

"Universities never have achieved 
and never will achieve more than 
their societies assist them to achieve," 
he continued. "If our higher educa- 
tion system, the envy of the industri- 
alized and industrializing nations, is 
to do all it can for our economy then 
those ultimately responsible for that 
economy — corporations, govern- 
ment and the American people 
themsdves — will have to begin the 
process of taking their own well- 
being seriously." He further ob- 
serve that when goals are clear, 
higher education will have the "com- 
pass needle required" to make it 
through the "stormy and dangerous 
seas" of the modem world. 

"What we must learn today," he 
went on, "is how to restore to our 
souls their inner hopefulness, the 
inner sense of aspiration and the 
sheer love of life that ultimately 
guides our learning in a fruitful 
rather than a destructive manner." 

He observed that at The George 
Washington University, we need to 
see our future as a garden. 

Trachtenberg enumerated as 
current challenges; a degree of 
disillusionment on the part of the 
American people regarding univer- 
sity life; the uncertainty of the long- 
range prospects for hi^ enrollment; 
extreme stress in the area of job 
security; and the unfavorable United 
States position in international 
competition. He remarked that as the 
lesson of reduced standing and 
capacity "gets mbbed in over the next 
few years, we should be seeing to it 
that univeristies in general, and The 
George Washington University in 
particular, offer the smallest possible 
target of opportunity to those seeking 
scapegoats to take the blame for our 
nationial situation." 

Pointing out the extent to which 
America's universities have indeed 
been responsive to perceived public 
needs, he noted that aroimd the turn 
of the century American scholars 
moved to supply the graduate 
training reqiiired by a modem 
industrialized society. 

In a discussion of the Western 
Tradition, Trachtenberg stated that 
its vitality "has always consisted, at 
least in part, of the fact that it incor- 
porates wit, drama and subversion as 
much as any sort of orthodox boos- 
terism." The tradition constitutes an 
enormous body of learning, he 
observed, noting that finding ways to 
do justice to this magnitude, while 
also giving our students an introduc- 
tion to other traditions is the chal- 
lenge for all universities, "led by 
those as independent and 
strategically positioned as 
George Washington." 

l along unto account the 
University's geographical location, 
the roles of its graduates in the U.S. 
and other governments, in business, 
the arts, law , engineering, the social 
sciences, the humanities and the field 
of medicine, and the institution's 
local, regional, national and interna- 
tional perspective, Trachtenberg 
summed up what he sees as a 
positive challenge for the faculty and 
for himself as president — "to live up 
to who and what we already are." 

He called George Washington, "a 
rather new kind of university" — a 
school that achieves nationwide and 
world-class status by choosing not t o 
imitate Oxford and Cambridge but 
by bringing the heritage of the 
human past and the present to bear 
on the increasingly pressing matter of 
the collective human future. 
Trachtenberg emphasized the 
University's responsibility to seize its 
present opportunity and said to the 
faculty, "I look forward, with real 
anticipation, to what you and I will 
now proceed to accomplish."

Correction ~ in the gw Report of 
August 26, Vice President for Student 
and Academic Support Services Robert 
A. Chemak was wrongly identified as 
vice president for student and alumni 
support services. GW Report regrets 
the error. 

Number 518 



Robert A. Chemak, Vice President for 
Student and Academic Support 
Services, threw away his prepared 
speech and touched on a wide variety 
of subjects at the September 15 
George Washington University 
Club breakfast. 

Chemak, who joined the Univer- 
sity on August 1, said he considers 
George Washington "one of this 
nation's great institutions." 

Based on his experience elsewhere, 
he said he has discovered that large 
institutions can sometimes be some- 
what bureaucratic and impersonal. 

"If there is one theme I'd like to 
stress," Chemak commented, "it is 
that we have to be much more 
conscientious of the kinds of cour- 
tesies we pay to each other and that 
we pay to students." There is no 
reason, he pointed out, for George 
Washington, "despite its vastness," 
not to be a personal institution. One 
of the ways that happens is to 
develop a management style and a 
management team committed to 
what he called "partidpatative 
management." Chem^ observed 
that we are an educational institution 
with room for debate, dissent and 
differing opinions. 

Among some of the processes to be 
implemented at the University will 
be the formation of a budget advisory 
team Chemak said, that will indude 
vice presidents, faculty, staff and 
students. The team will begin its 
deliberations in the next two months 
to develop a process for beginning to 
plan the fiscal year '90-'91 budget. 

The meetings are expected to last 
through next March or April. Min- 
utes of the meetings in the form of 
executive summaries, will be distrib- 
uted and will be on file in Gelman 
Library. There will be totvn meet- 
ings, at least one each semester, so 
that "any interested dtizen on this 
campus can discuss points of concern 
with the budget advisory team. 
Eventually the team will forward a 
set of recommendations to the 
president to hdp him formulate his 
dedsions "about which direction the 
University is going to go." 

Chemak dted this process as one 
example of partidpative manage- 

ment designed to "reach out and get 
various segments of this community 
involved in a feeling of pride and 
authorship about the institution." He 
said the same concept holds true for 
enrollment management planning, 
taking into accoimt all the factors that 
rdate to student enrollment, induding 
such fadors as priorities for housing , 
finandal aid and consistency with 
finandal and budgeting objectives. 
Chemak said there is a need for "con- 
gmency" between planning at all 
levds. "Once we get to some congm- 
ency, getting the gears of this vast 
machinery working together, I think 
you'll find that people have a better 
feeling about the place and will feel 
more a part of the dedsion-making 
process," Chemak predided. 

Speaking of athletics, Chemak 
stat^ that recent changes consolidat- 
ing the men's and women's athletic 
programs are "in no way meant to 
imply that the way George Washing- 
ton was conducting business in 
athletics was wrong, but it was 
unusual." He noted that only three 
ii«titutions within the National 
Collegiate Assodation had separate 
departments of men's and women's 
athletics. Since the cortierence to 
which (George Washington bdongs, 
Atlantic 10, has competition in all of 
its sports for men and women, Cher- 
nak said,"it made more sense, to start 
to integrate the two departments so 
that there is a single philosophy in the 
way we condud affairs." Stating that 
he, personally, does not accept the 
prindple that mediocrity is O.K. in 
athletics, Chemak dedared, "It's 
important to win." He pointed out 
that "all the literaiure that has ever 
been written" suggests that winning 
athletic programs not only increase 
the number of applications but also 
increase the quality of the student 
body because "people want to be 
assodated with success." 

A posture in athletics that meets 
the needs of all of our students, 
faculty and staff, along with an 
athletic program on the intercollegiate 
level, for both men and women, that 
cultivates "the habit of winning" is 
going to be developed, Chemak said.

contracts and from the University's 
annual operating budget. 1986 was

which will be available to anyone 
who is interested after the Ctetober 
meeting of the Coimdl of Deans. 

In annoimcing the creation of 
the fellowships, at the fall meeting 
of the Faculty Assembly, French 
commented, "Although far from in- 
consequential in themselves, these 
fellowships also may be taken as a 
symbol of where we cire going." 

He noted that "this investment of 
our resources does two things 
simultaneously, . . . strengthens 
our research capadty and 
enhances the quality of our 
graduate programs."

In a wide-ranging discussion with 
members of the GW Higher Education 
Association September 29, SEHD 
Dean Leo D. Leonard touched on a 
number of issues of particular impor- 
tance to the education community 
including financial aid, the experience 
of international students and educa- 
tional planning in developing coun- 

In the immediate future, Leonard 
said that it is going to be increasingly 
difficult for middle class families to fi- 
nance even public education. The 
need for educational support for the 
middle class is an area &at neither 
federal nor state governments have 
adressed very well, he continued, 
commenting that "until they do, it's 
very hard for either the public or 
private institutions to do much." The 
dean stated, "They are going to have 
to re-target the aid picture so that it 
moves up." 

In response to a question as to 
whether international students are 
well received, Leonard said that 
"there's always a distance and it isn't 
intentional, but people tend to move in 
their own cliques." Reemphasized 
the importance of a "good inter- 
change" between American and inter- 
national students. There needs to be 
the opportunity for the students to 
work together, he said, and there 
needs to be more structured activities. 
He noted that often international 
students return to their countries and 
become leaders and if they have an 
unfavorable view of the United States, 
this does not serve our country. "What 
we in America don't understand 
sometimes," he observed," is how a 
foreign student can perceive us as 
very arrogant, very selfish, very 
aloof." The reason we have disasters 
is lack of understanding between cul- 
hu"es, he said, adding that in foreign 
trade, success will go to "the one who 
really gets in and imderstands" other 

Leonard also discussed the idea of 
permitting a student to write a disser- 
tation in his/her own language. "I 
would say a person needs to have 
enough language skill to be able to 
speak, converse and understand in 
class but it's not necessary for that 
same student be be held up in writing 
a dissertation," he conunented, 
adding, "I think it's an idea that 
should be considered." 

In a discussion of educational 
models and planning, particularly in 
developing nations, the dean stated, 
"What you want to do is move people 
as quickly as you can to a state of 
academic and social freedom, wealth 
and opportunity. You must think 
where you are and decide what your 
goals are."

President Stephen Jod TVachtenberg 
called for the development of a 
national plan to mobilize America's 
colleges and universities on behalf of 
international competitiveness in an 
October 5 speech to the Rotary Qub 
of Washington D.C. 

Trachtenberg said that "the United 
States is at a real crossroads in the 
rdationship between its economy and 
its system of higher education." 

"America faces a challenge so 
davmting that it's far from certain 
whether we'll be able to surmount it. 
We now confront a level of interna- 
tional competition that could not 
have been anticipated during 1945- 
1970," he said. 

He went on to say that dining 
those years, initiative was clearly in 
the hands of the United States, and 
we made the most important deci- 
sions about our economic fuhne. 
However, "we have grown 
increasingly reactive rather than 
pro-active, and initiative has just as 
clearly passed into the hands of 
other nations." 

Trachtenberg said that according 
to some communicators, "the United 
States seems unable to dose the gap 
between its need for workers, and the 
potential workers whom it somehow 
cannot reach and train." 

He noted the 1940s population 
shift of center-dty dw^ers to 
suburban areas which resulted in"the 
emergence of two different econo- 
mies — one of them identified with a 
mainly white, affluent suburban 
middle class, the other with a mainly 
non-white or non- Anglo urban 
under class." 

He said that diere is a growing 
economic and education gap between 
those in urban and suburban loca- 
tions, "which is why," he said,"few 
foreign observers soimd optimistic 
about the economic future of the 
United States of America." 

"Since the early 1970s, a number 
of attempts have been made to 
enhance the opportuities for center- 
dty residents," he said, noting 
programs designed to enchance 
residents' access to the suburban job 
market, to create moderate-income 
housing in suburban townships, and 
to break down the jurisdictional lines 
that separate suburban public school 
systems from those of the center 
dties. However, according to 
Trachtenberg, "most of these have 
enjoyed linuted success." 

On the other hand, America's 
system of higher education offers "an 
'engine' that can be harnessed to 
America's present efforts to become 
once again, a fully competitive player 
in the global economy," he said. 

Devdoping a national plan will be 
"one of the most difficult tasks we've 

undertaken since the Second World 
War, for two reasons," Trachtenberg 
warned. The difficulty is due to both 
"the full range of America's personnd 
needs," and the very nature of our 
sodety which "values individual ini- 
tiative and competition in the quest 
for success." 

He said the task we face is to some- 
how "equalize the experiences of mil- 
lions of children growing up in the 
center-dties with those of cliildren 
growing up in the suburbs." He also 
said we would have to contact our 
minority populations "in ways that 
are sensitive and varied, yet effective 
in breaking through decades of 
suspidon and alienation." 

Trachtenberg noted that the path 
will not be easy because competition 
between schools is much more 
common today than wholehearted 
cooperation. "If we're to mobilize our 
institutions of higher education on 
behalf of international competitive- 
ness, we'll have to make certain the 
effort isn't undermined by competi- 
tiveness with each other," he said. 

He noted that as a nation con- 
fronted with fierce business competi- 
tion from East Asia and Western 
Europe, "we must overcome our 
disadvantages as a heterogeneous 
sodety. . . and integrate our popula- 
tion suffidently to ensure that our 
companies can find emd communicate 
with the workers diey need, and that 
those workers have or can swiftly 
acquire the skills fliat are needed." 

"The issue is no longer that we 
have a moral duty to hdp our less 
affluent dtizens, espedally the large 
numbers of them from minority 
backgrounds," Trachtenberg said. 
"Today, the issue is that we 
desperately need those dtizens as 
workers to keep our economy afloat 
and our nation competitive."

First Recipient of Yakobson Graduate 
Schoiarship Chosen 

President's Budget Advisory Team 

Lee Avrashov, a candidate for the 
Master of Arts in Russian/East 
Eiiropean Studies in the Elliott School 
of International Affairs, has been 
selected as the first recipient of the 
Helen and Sergius Yakobson Cj^du- 
ate Scholarship in Russian and East 
Europecui Studies. 

Avrashov, bom in Leningrad in 
1960, left the Soviet Union with his 
parents and grandmother in 1976 
when he was in the last year of high 
school. In 1978, he finished high 
school at High Point in Maryland. 
Entering the University of Maryland 
as an undergraduate, he transferred 
to the University of Colorado, where 
he received a Bachelor of Arts in East 
European /Soviet Studies in 1983. He 
says his main reason for studying 
Soviet affairs is for the purpose of 
possible benefit to United States 
policy. Fluent in English and Russian 
with a reading knowledge of Polish 
and Ukrainian, Avrashov hopes to 
go into government service and also 
into academic life. He became an 
American citizen in 1982. 

The Yakobson Graduate Scholar- 
ship, established in 1987, provides 
that recipients will be limited to 
Russian emigres or defectors. The 
scholarship is awarded on the basis 
of finanded need and excellent 
academic achievement or potential as 
determined by a selection committee 
of ESI A faculty appointed by the 
school's dean. 

Helen Yakobson, professor emeri- 
tus of Russian, came to the University 
in 1951 as its first lecturer and teacher 
in the Russian language. Chairman of 
the Department of Slavic Languages 
and Literatures from 1953 to 1%9, 
Yakobson was active in University 
life, serving on the Faculty Senate 
and faculty-student committees. 

Bom in St. Petersburg, she migrated 
with her family to China in the wake 
of the Russian Revolution. 

Arriving in the United States in 
1938, she was associated with Colum- 
bia University and the Voice of 
America before joining The George 
Washington University. She is a past 

Helen Yakobson, left, with scholarship 
recipient Lee Avrashov 

president of the American Association 
of Teachers of Slavic and East Euro- 
pean Languages. In recent years, she 
has been a motivating force behind 
Litfund, a fund for the relief of 
Russian writers and sdentists in exile. 
This year, she was chairman of the 
Washington-based Millennium 
Committee to mark 1000 years of 
Christianity in Russia. 

Sergius Yakobson, bom in Moscow, 
studied there and in Germany, where 
in 1926, he received a doctorate in 
history from the University of Berlin. 
Escaping the Nazis, he fled to England 
where he was associated with the 
University of London School of 
Slavonic and East European Studies 
from 1934 to 1940. The next year he 
came to this coimtry on a grant from 
the Rockefeller Research Foundation 
to join the staff of the library of Con- 
gress as a Fellow in Slavonic History. 
At the library, he served in positions 
of increasing responsibility, retiring in 
1971 from the dual post of senior 
specialist in Russian affairs in the 
Legislative Reference Service and 
chief of the Slavic and Central Euro- 
pean Division. Dr. Yakobson, who 
died in 1979, was seen as playing a 
principal role in broadening &e 
horizons of scholarship in the Slavic 
and East European fields.

If October's rains brought a few 
questions to your mind about the 
University's policy on the days of 
snow and sleet to come, the (Itffice of 
the Vice President and Treasurer has 
some answers for you. 

Because of the nature of the Uni- 
versity's services, as a general policy, 
the University will remain open 
despite local weather or travel condi- 
tions or other emergency situations. 

When conditions indicate, however, 
the University may take one or both of 
two actions: first, cancel academic 
classes; and second, invoke a liberal 
leave policy. The cancellation of 
classes does not mean that a liberal 
leave policy has been invoked, since 
certain services must be maintained 
at all times. 

The decision to invoke a liberal 
leave policy will be announced by the 
Director of Personnel Services. If such 
a decision is made and you are at 
work, you will be notified by your 
supervisor. If you have not yrt come 
to work, you will be notifieri by 
public announcements through local 
radio and television broadcasts. 

Among the radio stations that will car- 
ry information are WMAL-AM,WTOP- 

director of the budget; Raffi Terzian, 
Columbian College senior and 
president of The George Washington 
University Student Association; 

Susan J. Tolchin, professor of public 
administration; and Arm Webster, di- 
rector of Housing and Residence life. 

The team, which has already begun , 
its meetings, will be recommending to 
President Trachtenberg a process to be 
followed in the development of the 
fiscal year 1990-91 budget and will 
also be making specific recommenda- 
tions to him of resources to address 
University goals and priorities. 

In addition to the regular meetings 
of the committee, there will be two 
town forums scheduled, one each 
semester, where interested individu- 
als from The George Washington 
University community will be able to 
ask questions about the budget 
process being developed. The town 
forums will also give members of the 
President's Budget Advisory Team an 
opportunity to learn first-hand from 
colleagues and students about the 
issues that concern them. The first 
of the forums will be held in 
early December. 

During adverse weather conditions, 
certain employees will be called "des- 
ignated" employees. These are the 
ones who have been previously 
designated by their department heads 
as b^g needed to provide services. If 
you think you could be a "designated" 
employee, you will need to know this 
before the snow flies. It is best to 
check with your supervisor to make 
sure. Then you'll be ready. 

The liberal leave policy means that 
employees may decide to use accrued 
armual leave without prior approval. 
Employees who are imable to remain 
at work or to report to work will be 
granted the use of accrued annual 
leave. Those with no accrued annual 
leave will be granted leave of absence 
without pay. If liberal leave is an- 
nounced, each employee will need to 
notify his or her supervisor about his/ 
her work status as soon as possible. 

Employees in temporary positions, 
who are unable to remain at work or to 
come to work, will be excused without 
pay. With the approval of supervisors, 
such employees may remain at work 
or report to work and will be paid for 
the time worked. Temporary employ- 
ees are also requested to notify super- 
visors regarding their work status as 
soon as possible.

Secretary of State Shultz 
Receives Statesman Award 


Architect's rendering of The George Washington University Northern Virginia Campus 

George Washington University to 
Build Northern Virginia Campus 

The University will be expanding into 
Northern Virginia, President Stephen 
Joel Trachter^erg annoimced Novem- 
ber 9. A favorable vote by the Lou- 
doun County Board of Supervisors on 
rezoning property for a University 
Center project dears the way for the 
establishment of the Northern 
Virginia campus. 

At its November 7 meeting, die 
Loudoim Coimty Board of Supervi- 
sors voted seven to one to rezone a 
576-acre property slated to be a 
mixed-use devdopment with die 
George Washington University 
campus at its center. Located at the 
intersection of Route 7 and Route 28, 
University Center is a joint project of 
the University, the Chiles E. Smith 
Companies and the Michad J. 
Swerdlow Companies. 

In the initial stages of devdopment, 
the new campus will offer profes- 
sional and graduate programs and 
provide new facilities to support 
University research programs. To 
start, a 70,000-square-foot facility for 
classrooms, laboratory space, a library 
and administrative offices will be 
built. Classes are expected to open 
in 1991. 

Plans for the Research Center 
indude establishing a George Wash- 
ington University Center for High 
Technology, which will focus on 
enhancing the region's industrial 
competitiveness by merging academia 
with industry for joint research and 
devdopment programs. 

"We are immensely appreciative of 
the support for The George Washing- 
ton University Northern Virginia 
Campus by the Loudoun County 
Board of Supervisors," Trachteriierg 
said. "Together, we have the opportu- 
nity to create a dynamic graduate 
education and research center which 
will attract top sdentists, teachers and 
students, while contributing greatly 

not only to its home community but to 
America's competitiveness as wdl," 
he added. 

The developers provided a gift of 
50 acres of land for the University 
campus and research center, an option 
to purchase an additional 79 acres for 
future expansion, and a permanent 20 
percent income partidpation in 
endowment in ffie proceeds of the 
devdopment, which must be rein- 
vested in the Northern Virginia 
Campus in Loudoun County. 

Trachtenberg said, "The University 
Center project represents a first step in 
our partneidup with the private and 
public sectors." University Center 
combines a major university with the 
high technology interests of some of 
the world's leading corporations and 
incorporates Loudoun Coimty's own 
new vision statement. 

"The University Center takes the 
academic, research and scholarly 
talents of an extraordinary University 
faculty and pnits them in new labora- 
tories and classrcxjm facilities adjacent 
to offices and activity of high tech 
companies of indus^ and commence 
in a way that will serve scholarship, 
students and Loudovm Coimty and 
the District of Columbia, and tran- 
scending aU of those, will serve 
America," Trachtenberg said. 

The project indudes 321 acres for 
research and devdopment, office and 
retail uses, 52 acres for residential 
uses, and 123 acres for open space. 
Provisions have been made for 
affordable housing, ample common 
areas and significant transportation 
improvements. Some $18 million in 
regional road improvements will be 
provided by the devdopers in accor- 
dance with a comprehensive phasing 
program designed to keep improve- 
ments in pace with the devdopment 
of University Center. 

Secretary of State George P. Shultz 
recdved the second annual Statesman 
of the Year Award from The George 
Washington University Sd«jol of 
Government and Business Admini- 
stration at a November 9 luncheon in 
the Marvin Center ballroom. The 
event was co-sponsored by the 
National Law Center. 

Andrew Kolaitis, chairman of the 
SGBA Alumni Asscxdation, presented 
the award, a crystal dephant, its trunk 
upraised "for gocxl luck," with an 
appropriatdy engraved crystal cube, 
designed to serve as a base. The 
accompanying dtation praised 
Shultz's "vision and leadership" and 
took note of his accomplishments and 
service as Secretary of State, Secretary 
of Labor, Secretary of the Treasury 
and Director of the Office of Manage- 
ment and Budget as well as his 
"superb negotiating skills" in the 
work done on the EOT treaty with the 
Sovid Union, his "persistent influence 
and guidance to hdp move fordgn 
forces out of Afghanistan, Cambodia 
and Angola" and "his strong commit- 
ment in working for political rights 
and human freedom aroimd 
the globe." 

Shultz, in a brief response, noted 
that a university that combines 
attention to business and government 
with hdp from the law sdiool "is in a 
sense the combination that I have 
grown up in." For that reason, he 
said, he was especially appreciative of 
the award. He expressed the opinion 

that the concepts and experiences that 
are before people who are in business 
schcx)ls turn out to be very useful, 
commenting that this has been true 
in his own career in business 
and goverrunent. 

"It always strikes me how impor- 
tant it is to have in your life an 
attitude of learning," Shultz contin- 
ued. (Quoting George Bums' remark, 
"Y ou can't help growing older, but 
you don't have to grow old," he 
pointed out, "You've got to stay 
engaged and that means learning." 
Management, he said, to a certain 
extent is similar to teaching and, in his 
career he has tried "to create an 
environment where people learned." 

" If you can create a livdy learning en- 
vironment," he said, "that's an envi- 
rorunent people really enjoy and 
benefit from. If people feid T'm 
learning something here and I'm part 
of this prcxress,' then you've got a hot 

outfit Then you're boimd to see 

things happen." 

In addition to his government 
service, Shultz, a graduate of Prince- 
ton University and the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology, taught at 
M.I.T and the University of Chicago, 
where he was named dean of the 
Graduate School of Business. From 
1974 to 1982, he was president of the 
Bechtel Corporation and a director of 
Bechtel Group, Inc. He became the 
60th United States Secretary of State 
in July, 1982.

Frank Howard Lecture is 
Monday, December 19 

W. Edwards Deming, who has been

Monday, December 19, at 6 pjn. in 
die Marvin Theatre. Sponsored by 
The George Washington University 
Engineer Alumni Association, the 
lecture is open to all members of the 
Washington technical community. 

"One of die reasons we are in a lead- 
ership crisis is because Americans say 
they want, but don't really want, a 
leader or leaders who will make a 
genuine difference. President Stephen 
Joel Trachtenberg told the Washington 
chapter of the Americam Society of 
Public Administration in a November 
16 speech. 

"Only when grass-roots Americans 
tire of lullabies and insist on being 
told the truth, . . will the leaders they 
need step forward and receive an 
appropriate welcome," he declared. 

Trachtenberg noted the ambiva- 
lence in media coverage of the recent 
presidential dection. "Each time a 
journalistic barrage was larmched on 
how dismayed Americans were 
feeling about the tawdriness of 
campaign rhetoric," he said, "the 
counter-barrage would insist that 
Americans didn't want to hear the 
harsh truths about their nation's 
worsening economic situation and 
inability to compete with the other 
industnal powers." 

One of the themes running through 
the modem literature on leadership, 
Trachtenberg told his audience, is that 
flie successf^ leader reflects and 
catalyzes the feelings of those who 
agree to be led. That was tme of a 
destructive leader like Hitler and is 
true of the constmctive leaders, in 
government and business, who 
succeed in re-energizing a covmtry 
or a corporation tlut is stagnant 
or declining. 

But leaders like that "seldom come 
in inoffensive packages," Trachten- 
berg warned. That may make it 
particularly difficult for a potential 
leader to become an actual leader in 
today's America, where envy and 
criticism are so quickly arou^ by 
anyone who shows signs of excdhng 
as 2 m inspirational organizer. "If the 
organization as a whole is permeated 
with a preference for holding others 
down rather than moving one's own 

performance up," he said, "then the 
'can do' /'take charge' personality 
will be stopped in its tracks." 

The most disturbing possibility 
raised by recent critics of American 
business, Trachtenberg noted, "is that 
many or most of our major corpora- 
tions have frozen into bureaucratic 
stmctures of this kind." 

Trachtenberg believes that the eco- 
nomic crisis wWch now confronts the 
United States, including the huge na- 
tional deficit, is ultimately a crisis of 
motivation. "Our former enemies, 
the Germans and the Japanese, have 
done so wdl," he said, "because the 
Second World War cmshed their 
pridefulness while leaving intact their 
pride: pride in personal craftsman- 
ship, pride in a job well done. Pride 
of that kind was once widely shared 
by Americans." 

One of the leadership theorists par- 
ticularly worth paying attention to, 
Trahtenberg observed, is John W. 
Gardner, former U.S. Secretary of 
Health, Education and Welfare and 
former head of Common Cause. He 
praised (Gardner for noting that 
Americans sometimes resent the very 
idea of being led because they cherish 
— at least theoretically — the demo- 
cratic "town meeting" approach to 
political organization. 

"Gardner correctly puts physical 
vitality and stamina at the very top of 
his list of leadership qualities," 
Trachtenberg noted, "and also 
includes in that list the tendency 
toward assertiveness or dominance 
without which a leader is unlikely 
to succeed." 

A true leader in today's United 
States would have the courage to tell 
Americans that their current eco- 
nomic "prosperity" is an illusion, he 
declared. "Truths like flrat hurt," 
Trachtenberg concluded, and will not 
be told imtil the citizens of this 
coimtry are willing to listen.

Trachtenberg Urges Nationwide "Seif-Reform" by Universities 

Universities must recognize that 
criticism leveled by William Bennett, 
former Secretary of Education, had 
substance and stuck a responsive 
chord in the American population. 
President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg 
said in a November 15 speech to the 
Washington Higher Education Group, 
an organization of professionals from 
local \miversities, the federal govern- 
ment and various associations. 

Trachtenberg said the American 
public is not happy with the level of 
teaching that many students receive at 
universities. And even if Americans 
mvist bear a large part of the responsi- 
bility for the fact that good teaching 
does not necessarily lead to high 
status for a faculty member, he 
continued, universities will have to 
take the lead in restoring a better 
balance to their scale of values. 
"Self-examination leading to self- 
reform would therefore appear to be 
the mandated task," Traditenberg 
said. "After all, when Bill Bennett's 
fuel has been removed from the fires 
he helped to light, those fires will 
slowly bum out." 

What Bennetf s message boiled 
down to, Trachtenberg said, "was that 
America is disappointed in what it 
gets for the money invested in higher 
education." After an American family 
has worked hard to get a son or 
daughter into the best school pos- 
sible — usually a school like Harvard, 
Yale, Princeton or Stanford — ^it "then 
discovers to its horror that Mr. or Ms. 
Qiips isn't sitting in a wood-panelled 
office waiting to chat with the new 
student about an appropriate 
philosophy of life." 

Lrideol, Trachtenberg continued, 
such a family may be even more 
stunned by fl\e fact that so many 
courses are taught "by harassed 
graduate students who carry their 
dissertation drafts in briefcases and 
their students' term papers in 
shopping bags." 

Tbe American pioblic must assume 
a large part of the responsibility for its 

disappointments with higher educa- 
tion, he told his audience. By 
defming elite universities with 
enormous annual budgets as "the top 
of the pyramid" — ^universities which 
concentrate on research rather than 
teaching — Americans see to it that 
all of their universities and many of 
their four-year colleges also vmder- 
value teaclung. 

In world-^ss research universi- 
ties, Trachtenberg noted, the rule is 
that "the higher you rank as a faculty 
member, the less you teach." One 
result of having those universities 
serve as a paradigm, therefore, is that 
faculty members everywhere seek 
time away from teaching on the 
grounds that they have other duties to 
perform, including not only research 
but committee work and p^dpation 
in faculty governance. 

Even if Americans were to ac- 
knowledge their responsibility for 
this interpretation of academic life, 
Trachtenberg warned, many would 
then insist that those who work in 
universities, "with our claims to 
knowledge and reasoning power, 
ought to point the way toward 
a solution." 

Trachtenberg emphasized that one 
of die main problems awaiting a 
solution is the fact that so many 
American faculty members do not 
publish any research after they 
complete their dissertations. More- 
over, "of those who do go on to 
publish books and artides, only a 
minority produce research that is 
regard^, within their own fields, 
as significant." 

Trachtenberg characterized this 
situation as a "time-bomb waiting to 
gooff." If universities are to regain 
the support of the American pviilic, he 
said, then effective teaching that hdps 
students to enter rewarding careers 
must receive much stronger support 
than is the case at present. Academic 
officers throughout the nation must 
begin to discuss the reforms that can 
hdp to produce such a shift in 
their values. 

From President Trachtenberg... 

Once again the flags of The George 
Washington University are lowered as 
we mourn the loss of members of our 
community. On Tuesday, we learned 
of the murders of Warren H. Fulton 
in, a GW student, and Rachd Raver, a 
GW graduate. Both were athletes, 
Rachd, a soccer player, and Warren, a 
basketball player. They enriched this 
University by their contributions to it. 

We deplore this sensdess violence 
and share the hope that those respon- 
sible are brought to justice swiftly. 

The entire (George Washington 
University community expresses 
heartfdt sjonpathy to the families 
and friends of Warren and Rachd. 
We mourn with you.
